Duration:3 minutes
Bright silent craft with no navigation lights slowly cruises across the night sky

Traveling NW to SE a very bright light was observed for about three minutes flying very smoothly across the sky. Two airplanes were observed during the sighting cruising in other directions. Both airplanes had very visible red and white blinking navigation lights. No visible blinking lights of any kind for navigation were observed at any time from this particular craft. It was under some form of propulsion. It traveled slowly and steadily across the sky, and at one point intersected one of the airplanes that was traveling from S to N. The plane was obscured from sight for a moment as the craft passed below it. I clearly heard the engines from the airplane as it passed overhead, but there was never a sound that came from the other craft. It continued in it's southeasterly track until it was a distant light, yet still bright. Suddenly it became less and less bright, almost invisible for about fifteen seconds. Then it became bright again, and slowly went off steadily to the southern horizon where I lost sight of it. Very unusual and unexplainable. Left me wondering.
